A pleasant tipple.

Enjoyed this bottle of rosé last night, purchased from the supermarket chain Tesco. Deeply pink and very fruity it was delightful. Thud and I enjoyed a bottle of the red version of this wine, from the same producer, about a week ago. I have to say I think I could become very fond of any wine, red or rosé, made from this Sicilian grape variety. I shall have to explore further.

Never a pink drink person I rather liked it.

Thud,

That's because pink Nero D'Avola is often so close to red that you might not know the difference when tasting it blind.

Good find. Nero D'Avola's a clever little grape. Maybe I should venture to Tesco more often.

A million thank yous for bringing the weather with you VG, I will very much look forward to any future returns to the motherland.

There's a lot of pink stuff surfacing here too VG. Had a pinky Barbera d'Asti from Araldica the other day and it was actually rather good.

Thud: I think you should buy more whilst Tesco have it. It was lovely, very cherry.

Thomas: I have had Nero D'Avola before and do intend to try more.

Cesar: The pink, and it's red counterpart, would well be worth a visit to Tesco.
You're welcome about the weather...I can't believe in 19 days I have had only one rain day and even that wasn't that bad!

Ron: A pink Barbera d'Asti, I'd like to try that.
I think pink wines are wonderful, especially on a sunny California day when you want a little something more than just a chilled white.

Will you please let me send you a bottle of Cerasuolo di Vittoria? Nero d'Avola and Frappato... I'd be happy to...

Also, Negroamaro: the greatest Italian red grape from which to squeeze pink!

2B: Thank you, but it's not necessary.
